Yes I agree Barcelona are the best club in the world but they are beatable on a given day.
I think the Liverpool team of 5 or 6 years ago had a team and the tactics to beat Barcelona of today. Pack the midfield with real quality and patiently wait for a break. Boring to watch but effective.
United today kept Messi fairly contained, its not like there were 10 times i thought here we go.
The problem United had was in midfield, totally outclassed, out passed and no connection with defence or strikers and a great big hole infront of Vidic and Ferdinand the entire game.
It was embarassing, United played the wrong team and tactics.
At half time they should of moved Valencia to RB, off with Fabio and Hernandez, on Scholes and Nani.
Almost play 4-5-1-0, United could have frustrated Barcelona, got into the game by gaining confidence from passing the ball a little more and atleast had a chance.
I'm not saying they would of won, just made more of a game of it if they had changed formation IMO.
